eBay Scam – Urgent! Did You Buy From getwowprice Also Known As greatwallseller?

Posted by KittyFireFlash on September 10, 2009

If you bought an MP Player or usb memory pen stick flash drive from an eBay seller known under the ids of getwowprice and greatwallseller you risk losing information! You may not be aware that you purchased a false capacity device. The advertised capacity was wrong!

The flash storage chips were digitally altered to lie about their real capacity and fool operating systems.

SOSFakeFlash on August 28, 2009 published: getwowprice aka greatwallseller Ebay Fake Flash Seller High Alert Devious – China

Currently known as getwowprice, eBay has suspended this id! getwowprice has been sent to eBay Fake Flash Prison. It is urgent you test immediately! File a claim with paypal. Do not delay.

Currently PayPal is harassing victims of this seller’s scam refusing to cooperate with refunds.

getwowprice aka greatwallseller is one of the worst cases of fraud on file with SOSFakeFlash. Using private auctions this seller frauded thousands of members.

Paypal is not happy. Think of the money they need to refund! Do not let them get away with it! Force them to honour their supposed “Buyer Protection”.

One victim got this email from PayPal.

“Thank you for contacting PayPal.

Hello, my name is Katherine. I hope you understand that it is against PayPal’s policy to retain both the funds and the item therefore we require proof that the item has been returned to the seller before we will issue the refund.

If you fail to provide tracking information within 10 working days the claim will be closed in the seller’s favor and we can only advice you to take this matter outside of PayPal.

Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We value what you have to say, and we know situations like this can be difficult. If you have more questions, visit our Help Center by clicking “Help” in the top right corner of any PayPal page.

PayPal Resolution Services
PayPal, an eBay Company”

This is the standard robotic stupidity paypal engages in . Do not be deceived by it. It is a silly template response. Please review PayPal How Long Do You Have To Claim For A Refund In Disputes? A Guide About PayPal From eBayer’s Experiences.

We advise you examine the telephone numbers available for PayPal: PayPal Telephone Numbers – Quick Reference Guide To Get A Human Responding Instead Of An Email Robot Try to get a human on the phone instead of a computer robot! Do not allow PayPal to make you a victim a second time. This seller’s fraud is amazing and PayPal enjoyed the fee’s.

getwowprice aka greatwallseller Addressing Information:

Chen Haijian


RescueEbayFakeFlashVictimsBuyers for getwowprice aka greatwallseller need to be warned. In using private auctions, you will not see an eBay item number. It is not needed. If you see ‘Private”, it is hiding a fake MP Player or usb flash drive sold.

If you found this article find at least 5 members who left positive feedback at random. Send them a message. Warn them! Do a good deed. Tell them to test and march their claim to PayPal immediately! You can only send up to 5 messages a day. Save another victim!

Posted by KittyFireFlash on August 3, 2009

SOSFakeFlash has introduced a new category: Battle Plan It is on the left hand menu under Categories. You will find the lastest bulletin boards there.

Category Quick Links:

Please comment on these new boards – share your intel and experiences. Allow others their turn.

If your information is extremely important we will also do a follow up in English with a back point to your original language comment, so others can share in your thoughts.

We do appreciate the effort many make to communicate in English when it is not their mother tongue or comfort zone. But if you feel you need to address your country, please do! The message must spread and reach others around the world.

August 2009 – SOSFakeFlash Battle Plan

Posted by KittyFireFlash on August 3, 2009

Welcome to SOSFakeFlash’s new “Public” notice board for strategy to continue purging eBay of fake flash sellers. This is a new board. You will always find it under Category: Battle Plan – Strategy. Also see: Using The SOSFakeFlash Battle Plan Bulletin Boards – How They Work – Rules

The objective is to channel the energy of independent fake flash angels and commando’s to zero in on the important issues and tasks.

  1. Baby Fake Flash Seller Id’s
  2. Powerseller Fake Flash Seller Id’s Zapping

Baby fake flash seller id’s are being suspended quickly by eBay. This is good news. It prevents fraudulent sellers from building scores that can withstand negative feedback from buyers.

We are introducing a new notice board – Ebay Fake Flash Seller Hot List. You will always find it under Category: Battle Plan — Fake Flash Hot List. This board is for very dangerous sellers, especially powersellers. The objective is for victims to focus on these sellers and bring down their feedback scores – to the level where eBay can suspend them. This forces the fraudsters to switch to another id.

Is this a good thing? Yes. It means that victims can now focus on reducing another of their powerseller id’s to ashes. If you have any spare time you can contact buyers on for sellers on this list to warn them to test! If they have a fake and left positive feedback have them march to PayPal with a claim, send complaints to eBay. If the seller is still listing those confirmed fake flash items, have victims report every single listing, one by one to eBay. When different people do this, sleeping eBay awakes.

EbayPrisonMeanwhile, if you patrol and keep the fake flash counterfeit rings in the Orient from planting new baby id’s their precious high score id’s will be suspended; their opportunity to groom and grow replacement id’s starved.

This month’s objective – send as many powersellers to eBay fake flash seller prison (suspension) and prevent the grooming of baby id’s to take their place.

You may use this Battle Plan for the month of August to report suspected Baby Id’s and your independent progress. There will be a new battle plan issued every month and the old one closed. Please do not use your real eBayer id’s to comment. Chose a name for yourself – your identity at SOSFakeFlash.

eBay Fraud – A Powerseller eBay Can Not Stop From Harming Buyers Currently Known as intertrade-connection

Posted by KittyFireFlash on August 1, 2009

FakeFlashReprogrammerPowerseller ids with high feedback scores do not have to follow eBay rules. They are immune and do as they please. intertrade-connection has a feedback score of over 27,000. Very skilled at getting victims of fake usb flash drives, memory cards and mp players to change their feedback. How long have eBay members tried to STOP this seller from harming others? 13 months. The first documented fake was in June, 2008!

How is intertrade-connection getting away with massive fraud?

1) Private Auctions
2) Exceptionally High eBay Feedback score

and of course changing his id name to evade detection. intertrade-connection was previously known as i.c.distribution and before that, i.c.distribution and earlier as i.c_electronics. Three id changes in 13 months? Exactly what kind of seller would do this? An honest one? Not likely. Our database is designed to track this kind of evasion.

intertrade-connection is very much aware of the FrankenFlash Project and SOSFakeFlash. That is why he changed to private auctions, to bury the fraudulent activity even deeper.

You would think that eBay would DO SOMETHING! They can’t.

intertrade-connection knows this and will continue to sell items with false memory capacity, so harmful to data.

You would think that if ebay was so powerless to act against the sellers score, they would at least prevent the seller from using private auctions to level the playing field and allow eBay members to do their dirty work and bring the seller down with negative feedback. eBay won’t. They need intertrade-connection’s fee’s. eBay continues to lose members and it is no secret as to why.

Exactly what kind of a powerseller has over 270 negative feedback’s in 6 months?

There are lot of games being played by intertrade-connection.

Private Auctions or not, eBay victims are starting to leave negative feedback and they are leaving clues about the items they purchased. intertrade-connection might try to change his id again, but the negative feedback has to remain, otherwise he must surrender his high score and that is one thing intertrade-connection is not prepared to do.

If eBay refuses to do anything about fraudulent activities especially against this long term offender, it is up to you. Each negative is a voice and a permanent testimony. Contact buyers who bought any eBay item that shows “private” – warn them. If you found out too late, you can still leave follow up feedback telling the truth.

13 months ago this seller got away with it, almost no negatives. People did not understand what was going on. That is changing. SOSFakeFlash is seeing buyers fighting back with their feedback vote. You can too!


If you are a victim of intertrade-connection you have a choice to make.

1) Allow this powerseller id to continue to fraud – do nothing
2) Say NO! Fight back

If you don’t mind losing your data and your money, option one is the best choice.

If you don’t like what happened to you, you must fight back. FraudedBuyersThis is a dangerous seller and a very old one. The FrankenFlash Project can not do all the work for you. We need the army of victims to take down the nasty powersellers. Only when victims join together do these nasty sellers get shut down. The most famous example of what ebayers can do is seller 3totrade. 113 fakes recorded. How did that happen? It happened when eBayers decided to contact other eBayers and warn them. It grew. People tested and contacted others.

In the case of intertrade-connection it is now more difficult since the seller hides behind private auctions. It is not a problem, any feedback that shows “private” for an ebay item number is one thing – Fake Flash! intertrade-connection has made it easy for you. “Private” will lead you to a victim! eBay only allows you to send 5 messages a day, so you need other victims to join in. Get them to report to us at SOSFakeFlash using the Report A Fake Tab

We will take care of the rest and enter the data. You must be curious on the “How”, that we will not reveal. You would be surprised to learn who is unhappy about this terrible problem

Make sure to leave the calling card of “SOSFakeFlash” and “H2testw” in feedback to help others. If you left positive feedback, do a followup feedback to tell the truth! Let people know what you bought from this nasty fraudster!
